Why I Dumped Celibacy & Chose To Be A Babymama—Linda Ikeji

Former celibacy advocate, Linda Ikeji has been in the news since she announced her pregnancy on Sunday.
The richest blogger had taken to social media to share the news of her pregnancy and intimate her followers on the sex of the unborn child and how she wanted a baby badly.
Well, that didn’t go down well with a section of some young Nigerians. To them, Linda, who had preached celibacy for many years, shouldn’t have gotten pregnant after wedlock.
The trolls have been on her case since Sunday.
But Linda decided airing her views on twitter.

She tweeted:
“I preached celibacy to young girls because I feel that’s the right way to live until you meet someone very special that you love and who loves you and wants to be in a committed relationship with you. Passing body around and having multiple partners is not the way and I stand by it.
“And I’ve lived by it. But then I turned 36 and I knew there was nothing else I wanted more than to be a mum & wife and celibacy wasn’t going to get me that! I even did a video talking about how much I wanted these two things and God has finally answered my prayers. Beyond blessed.”

Linda, who is still single but engaged to an unrevealed guy, has over the years encouraged young ladies from sex before marriage. She also encourages young ladies to believe in being self-made and not hopping from one bed to the other to get riches.

A mentor to hundreds of young ladies, she has announced her engagement on March 28, 2018 and her pregnancy on May 20, 2018.
